And the great court round about
Which surrounded Solomon's house:
[was] with three rows of hewed stones, and a row of cedar beams;
these rows were one upon another, and were a wall to the court, which were either topped with a row of cedar wood, or that was a lining to the stones
for the inner court of the house of the Lord;
or rather as, or like to that, as appears from ( 1 Kings 6:36 ) ,
and for the porch of the house;
not the temple, but Solomon's house.
